of the house, john boehner, by john mccain's own bff in the senate, joe lieberman, he also disagrees with mr. mccain on this. same goes for susan collins of maine who did go to the classified briefing yesterday and noted publicly that john mccain was not there. even though it was his committee. mccain's special investigation idea was also shot down today by republican senator richard burr who said, quote, i think you've got to allow the structure we have of oversight to function and i think the intelligence committee is more than capable of handling this. in other words, the senate is getting information so maybe we should, you know, get information instead of continuing to scream on tv about not getting information. here's how you know when somebody is being disingenuous. when they demand something and then you give them that thing that they just keep demanding about and they pretend that you're not giving it to them and they just keep making the demand anyway as if it hasn't been met. john mccain obviously sees some advantage somewhere in continuing to scream on tv about the fact he's not

it four years ago when he defeated mr. mccain. obviously it's the will of the people. and you know, if you study history and especially war history, you can see how stories change and intelligence gathering, how it works. it has a whole different science and meaning all on its own many you've got to allow these people to make statements, comment back and adjust these statements, then you do jeopardize lives. there are so many things at stake. we're living in a society now where we want to know so much, we want to know it now and be the first to report it. and intelligence especially that just doesn't work that way. they were wrong to criticize. they should take a step back and wait until all the information actually comes out and then come to a position. >> karen, i do want to ask you about the susan rice angle here. because in wednesday's press conference the president really gave a full defense of her. is she worth the political fight that will surely ensue if she becomes the nominee for secretary of state? >> absolutely. i mean, the president -- i mean, look. on a number of fronts. numb
actually succeed or not and i thank you for your willingness to serve. i thank you, mr. chairman. >> thank you, senator mccain. senator? >> i would like to begin by expressing my strong confidence in general dunford in every sense of the word. i have a tremendous respect for his leadership, his integrity and when you look at his bio, i don't think people have really looked at it very closely. the greatest reward in the marine corps for leadership is to give someone command. general dunford has commanded at three different levels. he has a master's in government from georgetown university. i have known him for more than 20 years. i think he is a person we need over there in this very difficult and complex assignment. he has a sense of duty i admire. he has a great understanding of the role of military. athlete -- as we have seen, he has unambiguous and direct policy advice. that is what we are going to need. we begin to sort out what direction the country should be going in. i would like to take up where senator lieberman left off in discussing this bilateral security agreement. as you know
to try to bring an end to the violence along the border between israel and gaza, and he knows, john mccain says he knows just the man to do it. mccain says former president bill clinton should get involved. when he was president, mr. clinton held negotiations at camp david between israel and the palestinian authority. here's what mccain had to say about it on cbs' "face the nation." >> try to find someone, even as high-ranking, frankly, as former president bill clinton. to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together. >> all right. the latest recount in florida shows congressman allen west trailing his democratic challenger patrick murphy by nearly 2,000 votes. west, a tea party favorite, is trying to keep this seat representing florida's 18th congressional district. unofficial numbers posted on sunday evening on the florida secretary of state's website give murphy an edge, 166,257 to 164,353 for west. >>> all right. 2016 is a long way away, but florida senator marco rubio sure
the attack in benghazi? an answer to that question cannot possibly impact any investigation, nevertheless, mr. obama refuses to provide it. that raised all kinds of conspiraciy theories and now you have the petraeus situation added to the mix. at a press conference today, reporter asked senator john mccain if the fact that general petraeus' mistress kept secret documents in her possession was it more serious than the entire libyan debauchle? >> well, i say with great respect, that's one of the dumbest questions i've ever heard. okay? there is four dead americans. there is four dead americans. not a socialite. not a socialite. i'm answering your question. okay? do you want me to answer your question or do you want to interrupt? which do you want? okay. there is four dead americans. >> bill: senator mccain obviously feels very strongly that there is government mal feesance involved in the libyan chaos. but that has yet to be proved. however, the senate is doing the right thing by holding hearings trying to get the information out to we the people. look at it this way, back in 1972, richard nixo

in this caucus called the laz russ caucus, given up for dead and we came back. john mccain, joe lieberman and trent lott. the reason joe came back was mrs. lieberman. what a wonderful lady she is. >> so have you finished your rounds? >> i'm sorry. i had to do that because i do appreciate this opportunity. what happened? i came to the congress in 1972 as a young freshman congressman. served as whip during the reagan years in the house. came to the senate in 1989 with joe. i was a partisan warrior. the house tends to make you a partisan warrior. every day you get up trying to figure out how to beat the enemies and that's the democrats. after a few months i said, i'm not getting done here. i have to change my attitude. i am going to find a way to make this place work for the things i believe in. so i started working on that. what happened over the years, a number of things. number one, our biggest enemy in terms of getting things done is the airplane. people go home. particularly in the house. >> we had a statistic that 20% of the members of the house sleep in their office. >> they sleep in

, how he should be tried for treason. people make sharp statements. i remember john mccain reacting to a statement like that in 2008, just drawing the line and saying what kind of a person mr. obama was. in this case, mitt romney just passed it by. the sentiments are so strong, you don't want to confront or engage that. he said when asked by reporters later to be true, of course not. the house republican budget. committee. is now preceding to do two things. to insist on lower overall discretionary spending, that was agreed to in the law that came at the end of that dreadful process of holding the debt ceiling hostage. so unilaterally they declared that a floor for cuts and not a ceiling. now as a way of avoiding a vote sequestration of the defense budget propose a really remarkable search of additional cutbacks, and means tested programs of one sort or another. i even saw the most lucid and analytic of reporters, david rogers, show his emotion in the course of writing about that. and of course we had yesterday, successful republican filibuster on senate democratic plan for setting e
